WOW do I disagree with you!! Do you work in the Medical field? How many "mistakes" are made on people already? I personally want to be given the option of what the doctors and nurses give me if I am able at the time! When I make a simple mistake at work it doesn't have the potential to harm someone as it does in the Hospital! WHOOPS I forgot ha ha just doesn't cut it!!
What's the difference between all the vaccines containing tetanus toxoid? It's like alphabet soup! Tetanus toxoid is available as a single shot (TT) but is rarely given that way as it's best to also provide needed protection against other diseases at the same time. Tetanus toxoid can be combined with diphtheria toxoid as DT (for children younger than age 7 years) or as Td (for persons age 7 years and older). It can also be combined with diphtheria and pertussis as DTaP (for children younger than age 7 years) or as Tdap (for persons ages 10 through 64 years). Lastly, DTaP is also part of four childhood combination vaccines that include other vaccines (e.g., IPV, Hib, HepB).
